I blog primarily over at "geosciblog" (http://geosciblog.blogspot.com), I am doing this one for fun. It is inspired by 30+ years of beer can collecting and having tried more than 3,000 different American beers during that time. “. . . And beer was drunk with reverence, as it ought to be.” — G. K.

A Fine Pilsener Beer for Hopheads

In my previous post on the Lazy Magnolia Brewing Co. of Kiln, Mississippi, I mentioned Abita 20 Anniversary Pilsener and the high praise by my friend Neal.

I got to try a bottle of Abita 20th last night and it was fine, if one likes hops. Most American pilsener beers are not heavily hopped, except perhaps for Tupper's Hop Pocket Pils, brewed by Old Dominion Brewing Co.. Both of these are fine beers. [A reminder, I usually allow the un-opened bottle to warm for perhaps 15 or 20 minutes before gently pouring it into a glass, allowing about an inch of head, which allows the beer/ale to "breathe". You shouldn't just grab one out of the fridge and sit down and drink it from the bottle, nor is this a good beer for drinking while cutting the lawn. Actually, it is better to wait until the lawnmower is turned off before enjoying your reward.]

So, in closing, if you are within the Abita Brewing Co. sales area, and you like hoppy beers, I highly recommend getting a six-pack of 20th Anniversary Pilsener.
